Google Nexus 5 update sees handset’s design revised

A new Google Nexus 5 update has been rolled out, but strangely this one has nothing to do with the phone’s Android 4.4 KitKat OS but instead its design.

Following last month’s Nexus 5 release date, Google and manufacturing partner LG received a number of complaints about defects in the phone’s design. Now, however, the company has made a number of alterations to the flagship phone’s form factor.

With the first wave of Google Nexus 5 owners having complained that the handset had a sharp, “cutting-edge” frame, physical buttons that were loose and noisy within their housings and a slightly protruding SIM tray, Google and LG have now looked to rectify these issues.

Following the low key Google Nexus 5 update, images have now appeared online detailing the small changes between the original and refreshed Samsung Galaxy S4 rival.

Based on the images, the Google Nexus 5 update has seen larger speaker and microphone holes added, while the sharp edge is said to have been smoothed out and users have reported buttons are now more secure and rigid in the frame.

While users of the new handsets have reported no issues with the previously listed complaints, new Google Nexus 5 problems are said to have been introduced. According to some new owners, the 5-inch Full HD display on the iPhone 5S challenger is plagued with a yellow tinge and an array of green stuck pixels.

A direct follow-on to the Google Nexus 4, the Nexus 5 sees a high-end array of specs bundled alongside an affordable price tag. As well as a number of issues with the phone, consumers have had trouble getting hold of the Android 4.4 offering, with a number of Google Nexus 5 stock shortages having troubled the phone’s launch.
